The quality of your life is based on the quality of questions you ask yourself.
The quality of questions you ask yourself are determined by the hierarchy of your values.
Your hierarchy of values determine how you filter the world, how you perceive the world, ask questions about the world and act upon the world. – John DeMartini
So it wouldn’t it make sense to be conscious of your highest values?
Ask yourself these questions in order to discover what your values may be:
- What is the way I fill my space?
- In what ways do I spend most of my time?
- In what ways do I most spend my energy?
- In what ways do I spend most of my money?
These are all a reflection of your highest values.
Have you consciously determined what you value most in life?
Could it be that what you think is a top priority in your life, really isn’t? If what you think should be in your life isn’t, how much of a priority is it?
Maybe you just think it should be in your life.
Could this be the end of frustration as you know it?

I think this is mostly true but that it is a bit overstated. I think there is serendipity as well as intentionality.
I agree 100% that getting in touch with our highest values is liberating. I think this sometimes has elements of discovery as well as choice – I just do value authenticity, to choose not to would be depressing and annoying and I’m not convinced I could change this even if I wished to.
I think finding our real values will be the end of pointless frustration.
The thought that came to me was that the end of frustration is taking delight in the process.
Thanks for a very stimulating post.
Preach It Brother!!:-),,,I have been making my lists & checking them 3-4x to see if my life REALLY gives evidence of what I say I BELIEVE…LOL….Yes our actions speak louder than words, don’t they!?…I believe the key thing is to find a way(s) to FUEL our Passions/Values so we become obsessed with them …then we can not help but do them
